The purpose of this study is to test the safety of Erwinia Chrysanthemi asparaginase when used alone and together with chemotherapy and find out what effects, if any, it has on people.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the serum asparaginase activity in subjects ages 18 to
The primary objective of this study (TOTXVI) is to compare the clinical benefit, the pharmacokinetics, and the pharmacodynamics of polyethylene glycol-conjugated (PEG) asparaginase given i...
The outcomes of children with lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) in China in our previous study were not unexpected. In this study, through further modification treatment protocols and strengthe...
This is a phase I study using the Erwinia form of asparaginase in place of the E. coli form using a standard re-induction regimen (Vincristine, Dexamethasone, Doxorubicin) for patients wit...
Inotuzumab ozogamicin in combination with low-intensity chemotherapy (mini-HCVD) with or without blinatumomab versus standard intensive chemotherapy (HCVAD) as frontline therapy for older patients with Philadelphia chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia: A propensity score analysis.
The outcome of older patients with newly diagnosed, Philadelphia chromosome (Ph)-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is poor. The combination of targeted therapy with low-intensity chemotherap...
Enzymatic prospection indicated that L-asparaginase from Erwinia carotovora (ECAR-LANS) posses low glutaminase activity and much effort has been made to produce therapeutic ECAR-LANS. However, its low...
A Dose-Escalating Pilot Study (NCT03017404) of Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin and Cyclophosphamide, Followed by Docetaxel Administration as a Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Regimen in Patients with Locally Advanced Breast Cancer.
Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PEG-LD) has a comparable efficacy but a distinct toxicological profile compared with free doxorubicin. The use of PEG-LD and cyclophosphamide followed by docetaxel reg...
The treatment of relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (RR-ALL) presents a true clinical challenge. In 2012, a protocol combining bortezomib, dexamethasone, asparaginase, doxorubicin, and v...
Novel efficacious treatments with long-term tolerability are needed for transplant-ineligible, newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) patients. This phase 2 study evaluated the safety and efficacy of...
A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that causes vascular wilts on a wide range of plant species. It was formerly named Erwinia chrysanthemi.
A species of gram-negative bacteria, in the genus ERWINIA, causing a necrotic disease of plants.
Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.
A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)
Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.
